Gotcha #1: Certain types of files don't exist very well within CVS so this file-system is not complete. Cd into the Ramdisk directory and type:
make Slash/tmpThis will add the missing files to your copy (don't then do a cvs add on them as they are not meant to be stored in the repository). If you now perform a make in this directory it will turn the directory tree under Slash into a filesystem and zip it up for you. This is performed using the script makeFileSystem which can be called by hand (without any arguments it will give you usage info).
If you don't want to make your own kernel, you can load the file flash from http://www.cs.bris.ac.uk/Research/MobileWearable/Download/flash
make zImageThe file arch/arm/boot/zImage will contain your kernel image. If you don't fancy making your own kernel, you can get one from the repository by going to the root of your CVS tree and typing
make getkernelThis will pull the latest kernel from the website into your cvs root as kernel.gz. It is given a .gz extension because the makeBurnCard script expects one on the kernel image.
make burncardAMOSS DOES THAT WORK??? This will call the makefile in the Ramdisk module to ensure that the ramdisk.gz image is up-to-date and then call makeBurnCard for you. Ensure that there is a compactFlash card in waihona ready to receive it otherwise you will end up with your files written into the mount-point directory when it fails to mount. NOTE: The Bitsy won't recognise cards larger than about 10Mb so make sure you use one of these:
